MOSCOW, June 17 (Itar-Tass) - The main military prosecutor's office /GVSU/ exposed misuse of 60 million roubles by the former director of the Defense Ministry’s education department.
"Violations were exposed in the course of a check into the work of the former director of the Defense Ministry's Education Department, Yekaterina Priyezzheva, which the GVSU conducted jointly with the Interior Ministry's departments "K" and "M" and the military counterintelligence department of the Federal Security Service.
"The check ascertained that in August 2012, Priyezzheva, using her office position and acting in the interests of her acquaintance, director of the Isku Interior M commercial firm, arranged, in violation of legislation and tender procedures, the purchase of more than 1,000 sets of furniture for educational institutions of the Defense Ministry. The price of supplied property exceeded its market value by more than 60 million roubles, and the commercial firm derived super profit.
"To arraign the culprits, the materials of the check were sent to the Investigative Committee's main office," the GVSU said.
Yekaterina Priyezzheva headed by the Defense Ministry's Education department from 2009 to December 2012, and was responsible for the system of officer training, from military schools to the Academy of the General Staff.
